Side Effects Of Mold Infestations
Mold eats away at affected materials and surfaces, so it will eventually destroy the drywall or wood that it is growing on. This causes the affected surfaces and materials to weaken and experience structural damage. Mold has a strong, pungent odor that may linger in the building if the source is left to fester for a long period of time.
Residents of the building may experience infections and allergic reactions if they are exposed to mold growth. Common allergic reactions include skin irritation, headaches, nasal congestion, coughing, and itchy eyes and throat. Respiratory infections are a greater risk for those who are frequently exposed to mold.
Those with weak immune systems like the elderly and young children are more vulnerable to mold-related illnesses and the potential health problems will only worsen if you do not remove the mold on your property.

How To Test For Mold
There are several ways that you can test for mold, including:
Air Sampling Tests - involve collecting airborne particles from your home using special equipment like an air pump or sampler collector device. This type of test will measure the concentration of spores present in the air.
Surface Testing Kits - allow you to collect samples from surfaces around your home where mold is suspected. These collections should then be sent off for laboratory analysis where they will determine if there are any elevated levels of fungal contaminants present.
Bulk Samples - require you to collect at least 2 inches of material from the contaminated items. This includes samples from drywall, carpet, wood, etc. You can ship your sample to a lab that specializes in identifying fungal contaminants for a thorough evaluation.
All three methods mentioned above are effective at identifying mold in your home. We highly recommend hiring a professional if your test results indicate an infestation. Mold can quickly become a dangerous and destructive if not remediated effecttivly.
